BJie Mother, Perishing in a Snow
"In tho year 1821, a Mrs. Blako per
islicd in a snow storm in tbo night time,
?while traveling over a spur of tho Grocn
Mountains in Vermont. She had an
infant with her, which way found alive
and well in tho morning, being carefully
wrapped in tho mother's clothing."
Tho cold winds?Bwopt tho mountain's
And pnthless-r^was tho dreary wild.
And, 'initlythe.cjieorlefls hours of night,
A mother wander'd?with her child :
As through the drifting snow she press'd,
Tho babe?was sleeping?on her breast.
And colder still tho windB did blow,
^:rAna'.aS5lie^hourB ?f night o&mo on,
Aud deeper grew the drifting snow:
Her liml)6?were chill'd, her strength
?was gone ; :
"Oh, God!" she oried, in acconts wild,
"If I must perish, save my child 1"
She itripp'd hor mantle from her breast,
And bured her bosom to the utorm,
And round tho child?she wrapp'd the vest?
And smiled-Mo think her bab"5 was warm.
With one cold kiss?one tear she shed,
And sunk?upon her snowy bed.
At dawn?a havclcr passed by,
And saw her?'ncatli a snowy vail;
Tho frost of dentli?was in Vcr eye,
Hor cheek was cold, and heard, and pale;
11c inoved the robe from off the child,
The babe look'd up?and sweetly smiled !
